Perhaps she has because now she's shifted to vilifying Rod by proxy again.
Panel 1: We see John angered by the presence of a set of hand and foot prints and large letters "M" left in a cement walkway he was pouring. The reason is simple: John is stupid enough to think his five year old son won't act like he's five.
Panel 2: We next see him manhandling a terrified Mike who bawls "How did you know it was ME?" This tells me that John is about to beat the crap out the kid for a minor infraction. Again.
Summary: Between the inconsistent discipline he got from Elly and being the target of his Dad's rage at being mildly inconvenienced, it's no wonder Mike is screwed up.
